Jaguar Background

Tata Motors is the largest manufacturing company in India and the owner of the Jaguar mark since 2008. Over the years, though, Jaguar has cycled through many mergers and owners. Some important history includes:

  • Jaguar was founded as the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922, starting off making motorcycle sidecars.
  • Business extended to developing passenger cars under S.S. Cars Limited, which changed its name to Jaguar Cars in 1945.
  • Jaguar began winning international motorsports competitions in the early 1950’s, solidifying their place in history as a performance-focused luxury brand with classic cars like the Jaguar E-TYPE.
  • Jaguar Cars merged with the British Motor Corporation in 1966, which in turn merged with Leyland Motor Corporation in 1968 to become British Leyland.
  • After spinning off from British Leyland, Jaguar was acquired by Ford in 1990, remaining under Ford ownership until 2008, when Tata Motors purchased both Jaguar and Land Rover.
  • Tata Motors then created Jaguar Land Rover as a subsidiary holding company. Despite the change in ownership, Ford still develops and supplies Jaguar models with different technologies and components.

Who Makes Jaguar Cars?

Given this extensive history, who makes Jaguar cars? Jaguar headquarters is located in Whitley, Coventry, England, and production also takes place within the United Kingdom. In fact, Jaguar and Land Rover have used joint design facilities in engineering centers at Whitley and Gaydon in Warwickshire. Jaguar cars are also assembled at plants in Castle Bromwich and Solihull.
